They have decided that they better come after our free speech before
it is too late. Right now, free speech in America is being chipped away
at it in thousands of different ways. On the one hand, you have the
disciples of "political correctness" that want to make all forms of
speech that are "offensive" to anyone against the law. On the other
hand, you have those that are obsessed with "national security" that
want to ban all speech that is critical of the U.S. government or the
U.S. military. These twin forces are constantly seeking to push the
First Amendment into a smaller and smaller box. If you say the wrong
thing in America today, your website might be shut down, you could be
suspended from school, you may find yourself out of a job and there is
now even a possibility that you could be arrested and shipped off to
Guantanamo Bay without a trial.
Usually those that are targeted for their speech are those that the
"establishment" does not like. That would include free thinkers,
political activists, libertarians, true conservatives and Christians.
Instead of seeing the value in allowing everyone to say what they
think, we are being taught in America today that there is speech that is
"acceptable" and speech that is "not acceptable".
